Many Charlton Athletic fans have reacted to the transfer of former Addicks player Karlan Grant from Huddersfield to West Browmich Albion, which will hand them a significant financial boost.
West Brom manager Slaven Bilic has seen the likes of Hal-Robson Kanu, Charlie Austin and Kenneth Zohore all struggle to make an impact in the Premier League, with the latter two failing to gain any minutes on the pitch as of yet this season (via Transfermarkt).
With the domestic deadline closing today, the Baggies moved quickly to seal a deal for Grant, which saw the striker sign a six-year deal at The Hawthorns.
Welcome to the Albion, @karlangrant ✍️🙌

The transfer cost West Brom a fee of £15m, making him the Premier League club’s ninth signing this summer. Prior to his spell with the Terriers, Grant spent time with Charlton, appearing 98 times for the Addicks in which he found the back of the net 21 times in total.
Following the striker’s move to West Brom, details emerged regarding a 20% profit payment that would go to Charlton, as per a tweet from Sky Sports’ Ben Ransom.
Charlton will get 20% PROFIT on any fee received above the £2m Huddersfield paid for Karlan Grant in January 2019.

It’s been a pretty good window for making money that’s for sure.. know we can’t spend it as such but it’s always good to keep money coming in especially when it’s scenarios like this.. #cafc https://t.co/AJgVnewpDc

So pleased this goes to @SandgaardThomas rather than our corrupt previous owners.

Come on rodders “we can double our money on this”. Great news though. That little fee has literally paid off all 6 perm signings on two year deals if they were collecting the average 2k per week. In these wierd times, regardless of it being paid up pronto, this is superb!
